So, what is sésames?

Sésames, also known as sesame seeds, are a small but mighty ingredient used in a variety of cuisines around the world. These tiny seeds are oval-shaped and come in a range of colors, from white to black, and everything in between. Sésames have a delicate, nutty flavor and a satisfying crunch, making them a popular topping for breads, bagels, and pastries. They are also a key ingredient in tahini, a creamy Middle Eastern sauce, and are often used to add texture and flavor to stir-fries, salads, and roasted vegetables. Additionally, sésames are rich in essential nutrients, such as calcium, iron, and fiber, making them a nutritious addition to any meal.
